The owner of a 2006 Honda Pilot contacted the Tulsa Police Department to report their vehicle was stolen. The Tulsa PD verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Honda Pilot.
Approximately 12 minutes after the activation, flight officers with the Tulsa PD Police One helicopter picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Honda with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in their patrol vehicles and aircraft. The flight officers advised the ground units they observed the Honda parked in the street in the area of S Mingo Road and E 27th Street S.
Officers responded to the area and located the stolen Honda. The Honda was unoccupied and found to have the key still in the ignition. The initial reporting Officer heard the radio traffic of the recovery and notified the owner. The owner responded to the scene and was reunited with her Honda. The owner took possession of her Honda and drove away from the recovery scene.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Honda Pilot in November 2005 at Vandergriff Honda in Arlington, Texas.
